  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis' Class,

    These nominations are so awesome and extremely well-deserved! I am a regular reader of this blog, and I have received continual inspiration for my work both in the classroom and as a teacher librarian. Your online activities are so impressive and serve as a model not just for elementary school, but for all school levels through high school. If I were a second grader, I would definitely want to be in your class! Students, be sure to spread the word about these nominations; it is okay to campaign for votes from relatives and friends. :-)

    How are you all going to celebrate your nominations?

    Thanks again for all your support, Jane! I'm glad that you are enjoying your new job as a teacher librarian at Mira Costa High School. The students are lucky to have you!

  5. Dear Mrs Yollis class,

    I huge congrats to you all! Your FOUR nominations are so well deserved!

    As I have said many times before, you have given me so many ideas for the 2KM blog and you have helped to make me and my students better bloggers!

    The thing I love about these awards is that lots of our friends have been nominated and hopefully we can share their successes with them!

    Good luck to you!

    Your friend,
    Mrs Morris (Miss McGeady)

  6. @ Hannah★,

    Thanks so much for commenting back to Mrs. Lofton! You are a true blogger! Terrific work!

    @ AA,

    Thank you! It is such a wonderful feeling to be placed alongside such outstanding educators! It is fun to expand our learning community too! I've already started to explore the lists! Quite impressive!

    Congratulations to Bianca! She has developed into a great writer and I was thrilled to see her name on the list of nominations!

    @ Mrs. Morris, (Formerly known as Miss McGeady)

    Thank you for your kind congratulations! Educational blogging has come so far and it has been great to be on this path with you!

    Sincere congratulations to you too with your blogs and student blogs! :-) The girls must be thrilled!

    I know it sounds corny, and I'm certain you feel the same way... but I am absolutely thrilled just to be nominated. There are so many great people out there to learn from...I look forward to many new adventures!

  7. Dear Mrs. Yollis' Class,

    Congratulations to you and Mrs. Yollis! You all deserve this great honor. As a 1st grade teacher I have learned that sharing your knowledge with others, in your case with other students and teachers all over the world, is extremely powerful. There is so much we can all learn from each other.

    I see that you will be celebrating your nominations. Have you had any other celebrations this year?

  8. Dear Mrs. Sather,

    How are things in Montana? Snow yet?

  9. Dear Mrs. Yollis,
    Congratulations on your Edublog nominations. They are very well deserved indeed. Your blog is an inspiration to us "newbie bloggers". Thank you for all your support and help. It is greatly appreciated. Good luck!

  10. Dear Mrs. Yollis' Class,

    It is fantastic that you have been nominated for so many awards! I am not surprised though - your blog is amazing. My students and I learn so much from you.

    My teaching wouldn't be nearly as much fun if I didn't have you, 2KM, 2KJ, Team Toa, and all our other blogging buddies to learn from. I think it is great that all the blogs from the Ugandan Global Project have been nominated - we are all learning together.

    Thank you for being such fabulous blogging buddies!

    Congratulations and best of luck.

    Your friend,
    Mr. Salsich

    In class we are reading The Mysterious Giant Of Barletta. It is nice to tell you we are reading a book based in Italy. Also we just ate more of the kinder cholates,they were good, yum, yum, yum, yum!

    Yours truly,

    I thought it was a good story. Glad you liked the chocolates.
